Note: Due to COVID-19 concerns, only bottled beverages will be available during the reception. We encourage attendees to wear a mask.

Twelve women whose leadership has made a difference at Iowa State University will be honored on the 2022 Women Impacting ISU calendar.

The 2022 calendar will be officially unveiled during a reception recognizing the honorees on Tuesday, January 25, from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in the Sun Room of the Memorial Union. The program will begin at 4 p.m., and will be livestreamed. After the program, copies of the calendar will be distributed for free. Because the 2021 calendar reception was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 honorees will also be recognized at the reception. The event is free and open to the public.

Students selected for the 2022 calendar are: Mariana Gonzalez, a senior in political science and public relations, and Vayda Wilkins, a senior in civil engineering.

Faculty selected are: Samantha Cross, associate professor of marketing; Heike Hofmann, professor of statistics and professor in charge of data science; Surya Mallapragada, associate vice president for research in the College of Engineering, Anson Marston Distinguished Professor and Carol Vohs Johnson Chair of Chemical and Biological Engineering; Xuan Hien Nguyen, associate professor of mathematics; Hilary Seo, dean of library services; and Ann Marie VanDerZanden, associate provost for academic programs and professor of horticulture.

Staff chosen for the calendar are: Jennifer Leptien, director of learning communities; Pamela Newsome, custodian II; Jessica Shannon, assistant director of nursing and patient services at Thielen Student Health Center; and Virginia Speight, director of residence life.

The Catt Center sponsors the calendar with funding provided by the Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

Copies of the calendar will be available in late January at various campus locations, including the Catt Center, Beardshear Hall and the Memorial Union. If you would like calendars for distribution at your campus office, email the Catt Center at cattcntr@iastate.edu.
